The Chronology :: New Edition Posted

Read the Latest version of our Covid Chronology — version 5.1.9

Note from New York, Jan. 24, 2023 — Version 5.1.9 is a minor upgrade that mostly cleans up typing errors. The note below remains the most interesting upgrade. I am planning to have a beta of 2021 up soon. This one will be more of a news chronology than a primary source scientific one, though I reckon that over time we will add primary sources as they come in. Also, I recognize we need to focus a level of this whole project on litigation. Is there someone in the house who would help out with that? Basic paralegal skills would be perfect, or we can train. Write to me!

Note from New York, Jan. 12, 2023 — I’ve posted a new edition with some important additions related to the initial papers claiming the existence of a virus in early January 2020. This includes an email from David Rasnick, Ph.D., who explained the means by which the Fan Wu team did its metagenomic transcript and claimed that it was a full sequence of SARS-CoV-2. We are currently sorting out technical matters related to the declaration of the “public health emergency of international concern” (PHEIC) declared Jan. 30, 2020 and the global pandemic declared March 11, 2020. The posts below go over the additions to version 5.1.6.

I intend to have a draft of the 2021 chronology posted within a week or so. We are done with the main framework of the document; I need to go over it and clean up the language and presentation. But, it is done. We continue to track events every day in real time at Covid19 News. — efc

Note from New York, Dec. 18, 2022 — I’ve added an explanation of the patient origin of samples claimed to have been used in creating the metagenomic transcripts leading to the submitted files 402123 and MN908947. This will give you an idea how complex this process is, as well as the complexity of documenting what happened. You may find this on page 35 of the new edition. — efc

Note from New York, Dec. 1, 2022 — At long last, I have a new edition for you. There are two main improvements: we have done a careful trace of media reports claiming some version of the lab release theory. Several of these have been added. The origins of the now de rigueur theory of “covid” go back to January 2020 PR rollout of the pandemic scenario.

The story was initially dropped as a denial of lab leak theories, even though hardly anyone knew that anything was supposed to be happening; this was around Jan. 23, 2020. The media strategy developed into one publication would claim lab release, and another would discredit it is a scam. This MO is still being used in late 2022.

Eric Francis with Dr. Sam Bailey — How Digital Conditions Influenced the Lockdown Crisis

Eric Francis in a new appearance on the Sam Bailey Channel

Dear Friend and Reader:

This week I am again the guest on Dr. Sam Bailey’s channel, talking about how full digital conditions influenced the lockdown crisis. This discussion is based on my study of the work of philosophers Marshall and Eric McLuhan, who pioneered the field of media studies and taught me about life under full digital conditions.

Don’t Look Back | By Eric Francis Coppolino

“To most people reading the news, the fact of the governor shutting down Broadway and the rest of New York’s world-famous entertainment and professional sports industries was proof enough of a serious problem.”

“To most astrologers, the aspect associated with what was called a coronavirus pandemic was Saturn conjunct Pluto in Capricorn. The conjunction, which happens about once every 38 years, was exact on Jan. 12, 2020. It was the “great reset” of the Saturn-Pluto cycle most famous in recent memory for its presence in the chart for Sept. 11, 2001.”

And Now it’s Time for Monkeypox!

We are tracking the “monkeypox” situation that emerged last week, seemingly out of nowhere. It has not; it has a long history. We’re following both mainstream news developments, as well as our reliable sources, and reaching out to our scientific contacts for specific information related to the nature of the test.

This story emerged May 7, just as New York was bringing back “mask” recommendations. Nobody has been talking lockdown, yet; we wonder if that much terror or sense of phony civic duty could be mustered up a second time. However, they are trying to ruin the first seemingly normal summer festival scene since 2019.

What does it mean to follow the science? Lessons from IBT Labs

Dear Friend and Listener:

Last week on Planet Waves FM, we featured an interview with Peter von Stackelberg (player above), who in the late 1970s was busy covering grain futures for the Regina, Saskatchewan Leader-Post. He heard that there were some pesticides that may have had their registration pulled, and he looked into it.

As a result of that one decision, he broke open one of the strangest, most far-reaching scandals in scientific history — though today few people have heard of it. It involved a total regulatory failure of the FDA and EPA approval process for agricultural chemicals, food and cosmetic additives, industrial chemicals and many others.
